Registrations are now open for Semester 2!

Lifeline WA are running their DBTeen program for parents and carers and their children aged 14-18 years who exhibit difficulty regulating their emotions and behaviour.

Commencing in June, this 12-week workshop will cover:

  • Mindfulness skills: staying focused on the present moment without having to react
  • Distress tolerance skills: coping with distressing situations and painful emotions without making things worse
  • Walking the Middle Path skills: balancing ways of thinking and behaving to improve flexibility in responding to common family dilemmas
  • Emotion regulation skills: developing skills to use when faced with intense and painful emotions
  • Interpersonal effectiveness skills: communicating needs and wants, improving relationships, and building self-respect in relationships

DBTeen is a dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) informed program delivered in a Primary Care environment with multifamily groups.

Parents and carers develop the same skills alongside their children and support them in embedding the skills in their day-to-day lives.
